Famous for its Newton Food Centre, this neighborhood is perpetually packed with locals and tourists alike. The Orchard district is a short 3 minutes drive away, providing easy access to a number of shopping malls, entertainment facilities and dining options. Right around the corner sits Raffles Girls' Secondary School, one of Singapore's leading education institutions that regularly top the annual school rankings. Despite being so close to the bustling roads of Orchard, Newton remains a tranquil neighborhood consisting of condominiums like Admore Park, Cairnhill Crest terraces and semi-detached houses. Residents can enrich their lives by picking up courses and new skills at the Cairnhill Community Club, which offers an assortment of classes ranging from performing arts to adventure sports. Sheraton Towers is situated next to the train station, allowing business travellers to make their way to the Central Business District effortlessly.
